Breaking it Down: How to Decipher the Language of Anatomy and Physiology

Mar 31, 2014 8:27:00 PM by MTTI

By Robin Faux, MTTI Anatomy & Physiology Instructor

They say the best way to learn a foreign language is to completely submerse yourself in it. Going to massage school can certainly satisfy that experience, but when you’re trying to absorb information from lectures and textbooks, it can sometimes be overwhelming to wade through words that are 4 to 5 syllables or longer. Craniosacral… sacrotuberous… neuromuscular… adrenocorticotropic… huh!? On top of that, you’re expected to learn directional terms such as “superior…proximal…lateral…superficial,” and you’re probably thinking to yourself, “if I wanted to learn a foreign language at break-neck speed, I would have become a barista at the coffee shop down the street!”
